Subject: My Grandfather
I am Nikki Hornsby the granddaughter of Dan Hornsby. I have inherited through my late father a lot of my grandfather's lifetime career materials from posters, newspaper articles, to 78 recordings.
I am also in the professional entertainment profession all my life.
Wish I could have met the man from where my talent came from but he died before I could.
